UV Lighting?

I can't seem to find Exo Terra Repti Glo 05.0 Jungle lamp 15 Watt 30 inch so I had to go with the Exo Terra Repti Glo 10.0 Desert Terrarium Lamp, 25-Watt, 30-Inch and that got me thinking; Can you give to much UV to a Jungle Carpet Python?
George- 1.0 Purple Albino Reticulated Python... Cornella- 0.1 Pink Phase Corn Snake?
Moe- 1.0 Jungle Carpet Python... Fred- 1.0 Taiwanese Beauty Snake...
Crystal- 0.1 Blue Eyed Leucistic Ball Python... A cross between a Mojave to Lesser...
Leon- 1.0 Lemon Ball, aka Russo Het White Diamond Ball Python... Crystal's boyfriend...

Re: UV Lighting?

Easily. They're from Australia - think how high the uv index is there. So long as there's plenty of hiding spots as well so Moe can choose.

Word of warning re eco terra tubes-they start dropping their uv output after 6 months or so. When you come to replace it go for ZooMed or even better Arcadia if you can find it over there.

Great to see you joining the 'uv club' btw!

When this never ending house move and chaos at work is over I'll put together a list of papers on the subject as it's really interesting reading.
0.1 B imperator, 1.0 M spilota harrisoni, 1.0 C hortulanus, 2.1 P reticulatus (Madu locality), 1.1 S amethystine, 1.1 L olivaceous, 1.0 C angulifer, 1.0 Z persicus, 0.1 P regius, 0.1 N natrix, 0.1 E climacophora, 1.0 P obsoletus, 0.1 L geluta nigrtia, 1.0 P catenifer sayi, 1.0 T lepidus

Re: UV Lighting?

I agree with Danny. Exo terra aren't the greatest quality, you can find Arcadia bulbs on Amazon. I've used them on aquariums before and they make a great product
